Togo Football Federation (TFF) has said that so far it has no plans to investigate the sudden death of a player on Monday.
Winger Toyi Awi collapsed and died suddenly while training with his club ASKO de Kara, who are the Togolese champions. The 26-year-old fell to the ground clutching his chest during training on Monday evening and passed away before he reached hospital.
“So far we have not decided whether to carry out an investigation into the sudden death of this promising player.”
According to a team-mate Awi, who was also a member of Togo’s national side for locally-based players, had not complained of feeling ill before the session. His team are preparing to take part in the preliminary round of the African Champions League after being drawn against Racing Club Abidjan from Ivory Coast.
